Flooring Trend: Layered Rugs

Published: February 19th, 2014

At Hopkins Carpet One, we are always on top of the latest trends. We came across an article recently on HGTV’s website, focusing on Layered Area Rugs. The movement is focused on accessorizing your flooring! The article points out that you can layer rugs on top of hardwood, laminate and vinyl flooring, as well as carpeting. This is perfect for those who need a little extra cushioning or have too much flair to fit into one rug. In this blog, we’re going to cover some of the most enticing elements of this new flooring trend.

The number one reason to layer area rugs is style. It’s a way to accessorize your existing flooring. You can spruce up hardwood flooring with colorful patterns. Layering area rugs is also good for those who just can’t choose just one! Instead of coming to Hopkins Carpet One and selecting just one rug, you have the ability to choose multiple, complimentary patterns. The article suggests starting with a neutral color rug, and building on more eye-catching designs.

Extra Cushion
If there’s an area of your home that you wish you had a little extra cushioning, you can resolve that by layering rugs. Treat your feet when you get out of bed in the morning by adding a rug to your bedside. High traffic areas, or areas that are used to seeing some falls, are the perfect places for some extra layered rugs. Put one by the baby’s crib or in your child’s room for extra comfort and protection.

The piece also highlights the affordability of layering area rugs. If you have a space in your home you need to cover, instead of buying one larger piece of rug, you can purchase a number of smaller rugs. You may be able to get a piece of more expensive rug and feature it on top of a number of other, less expensive rugs. It allows you to stay within budget, but also have a bit of that high quality look and feel.
